Q & A Session with Jim Beaulne and Kevin Williams
Luke 9:23-27 says
"And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?
For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God.”

Lead Pastor, Capital City Church
Since 1989, Pastor Mike has been diligently following God and helping people do the same. He grew up in a family with a sense of purpose, drive, & determination. His father, Douglas Welch, was an Anglican minister who had a passionate love for God & a desire to help people. These character traits are very evident in Mike’s life today.
It was in 1986, that he met the love of his life, Lynda. They opened a restaurant in the early 90’s, and this is where it all began - Bible studies, prayer meetings, & Men’s Full Gospel meetings all become routine at the Junction Family Restaurant. They soon decided they wanted something more, and that’s when both of them decided to go to Bible School. Between 1st & 2nd year, Mike & his family went on a summer mission to Longlac, Ontario to pastor a church in the community. Mike graduated with a Christian Ministry Diploma and was immediately sent off to Guelph, Ontario to pastor his 1st church. Him & his family were there for over 3 years and saw many people give their lives to Christ as a result of their work. They were very involved in the city of Guelph, and volunteered alot of their time with inner-city youth & adults. In 1999, Mike then got commissioned to Ottawa, Ontario where they now reside and he is the Lead Pastor at Capital City Church. Mike is ordained by Open Bible Faith Fellowship, and is a board of director for OBFF.
Mike has always had a love for toys that have an engine & gas. He enjoys spending time on his Harley, whether he’s going on a tour with Chariots of Light or Lynda & him are going out for a coffee. He appreciates quality family time spent with his wife, daughter & son-in-law, and He loves the annual Welch brothers cottage trip. He also enjoys going for daily walks with his dog. And he definitely delights in all things chocolate! His life motto is, Simplify.
